Stella Parker Chinese Medicine Practitioner




Stella Parker is a degree qualified Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner practicing Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine at Darling Health. She loves creating a modern village for busy women (from periods to perimenopause) and tired mums, with a focus on hormones and mental health. 

After a decades-long career in music and arts PR, alongside teaching yoga across Sydney for 15 years, Stella committed to her Chinese Medicine degree at the University of Technology Sydney. Acupuncture was life-changing in her own battle with depression, anxiety and burnout. 7 years later, with a mixture of part-time and full time study and a long IVF journey and baby along the way, she finished her degree and loves sharing this amazing modality with her local community.

Alongside her studies, Stella also undertook a 5 year apprenticeship in Pulse Diagnosis, giving her priceless clinical experience and a deep understanding of diagnostics. This is seen in her treatments, which often see fewer pins that get right to the heart of the issue. She utilises a highly effective shallow needling technique which works beautifully with the body’s own system of healing, integrating cupping when required also. 

During her degree, Stella also undertook further research studies & clinical practice in postnatal and maternal fatigue, plus hormonal issues including infertility, PCOS and dysmenorrhea. As a chronic fatigue syndrome warrior herself, she is passionate about burnout, fatigue, and mental health, and works well with Western medical doctors and other complementary medical practitioners such as GPs, midwives and physios, to ensure thorough holistic care is achieved.

Stella loves providing a safe and trusting environment for people to come in and unwind from busy city living. Stella is accredited with the Australian Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Association (AACMA), and a registered member of the Chinese Medicine Board of Australia (CMBA).
